My friends, Aparna Khanolkar and Lisa Beck has this wonderful organization called Grace, Power and Beauty. Their teach the ancient Indian healing art of Ayurveda combined with music and dance and offer retreats, classes, workshops, and cooking classes. This is my new favorite smoothie recipe I learned from these lovely ladies.
(Adapted from Aparna & Lisa’s Luscious summer tonic)
1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries
1/4 cup fresh organic raspberries
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut water
1~2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon silken tofu
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 medjool date (pitted)
Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend away. Feel free to adjust coconut milk/coconut water amount depending on how thick you want your smoothie to be.
Have a fabulous, healthy and luscious day~~ xoxo

I make a lot of smoothies, but I like that this one is so different from my usual. Never tried dates or tofu in a smoothie but it sounds delicious!

This juice is just so so pretty. I love the color of mixing blueberries and raspberries together. In fact, I love all of the ingredients…incredibly healthy drink.
If only I could reach for that delicious blueberry smoothie right now… it really looks so delicious and packet full of goodness! 🙂
